When R Madhvan was denied entry at IFFI

7 years ago

 R Madhavan's fame as a Bollywood star  with films like 'Rang De Basanti' and '3 Idiots' didn't help  him gain access to the biggest film festival in India.  The actor did not have a pass to the IFFI here and  security guards denied him entry at the gate.  Madhavan was here on Tuesday to attend the felicitation  of his '3 Idiots' co-star Omi Vaidya. The  latter's documentary  'Big In Bollywood' was also screened at the event.


 Vaidya said that Madhavan, who also features in his  documentary, was on his way to the event.  But Madhavan did not turn up. Eye witnesses said that the  actor waited at the gate for two minutes, and left afterwards.


 IFFI director Shankar Mohan told PTI, "I wasn't even  aware that Madhavan was here. We would have loved to have him at the festival. The people who had invited him should have  made arrangements for his pass."  Madhavan is currently in Goa to shoot for his upcoming film 'Jodi Breakers' also starring Vaidya and Bipasha Basu. (PTI)
